Usagi’s vision was still cloudy. Usagi had used the Ginzuishou on herself to forget Mamoru all together.
When she did that, some important qualities about Usagi-Chan vanished that day. Everyone missed the old Usagi-Chan. The current Usagi-Chan was too dull, serious, and boring. Luna and Artemis watched Usagi closely. Usagi never responded unless spoken to. This was not like the Usagi they had known. Rei stared at the Sacred Fire. Rei missed the smile used to beam from Usagi. A tear flowed from Rei’s eyes. She would not let the others see it. Usagi sat in the other room and stared at the wall. She just stared at the wall and not doing anything. Ami and Makoto could not stand it any longer.
“Usagi, we would like to take you somewhere special. Please come with us.”
Usagi simply replied in a dull tone. Usagi got up from where she was sitting, and Ami and Makoto held on to Usagi because Usagi could not see good. Ami and Makoto took Usagi down to the Game Crown Arcade. Ami and Makoto took Usagi in and there by the counter was Motoki-San. He greeted them.
“Hello Ami, Mako-Chan, and Usagi-Chan! What brings you in here today?”
“We are here to re-jog Usagi’s memory. Usagi has developed amnesia. We are here to get Usagi to remember the things she loved most.”
Makoto replied. Motoki looked at Usagi. Then he spoke.
“She looks seriously dull, if you ask me.”
“Yes, that’s right. She won’t respond unless you talk to her.”
“I see. Usagi-Chan, how are you feeling today?”
Usagi replied in a serious, but very dull monotone. Motoki was shocked.
“I see what you mean.”
Motoki told Ami and Makoto.
“Anything we can do to re-jog her memory?”
Ami asked. Motoki thought. Then he had an idea. Then he led the girls to a table. Then Motoki prepared three Chocolate Milk Shakes and brought them to Ami, Makoto, and Usagi.
“Here. It is on the house! Enjoy!”
Motoki told them as he sat down with them.
“It’s a chocolate milkshake. You drink it. Use the straw that’s in the glass.”
Motoki told her. Usagi tried a bit of chocolate milkshake. Some of Usagi’s memory surfaced in her mind. The memories flooded to her mind of all the times Minako, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Chibiusa came to the Game Crown Arcade to have chocolate milkshakes. Usagi spoke.
“I used to come in here a lot and have this shake and play the Sailor V Video game. I can’t play it now because of my eyesight.”
Usagi remembered a bit, but none of the memories had Mamoru in them. Whatever happened to Usagi, the memories of Mamoru may have been sealed deep within Usagi.
“That’s right. You used to come in here with us and Mamoru included. You used to play the Sailor V video game but, you weren’t exceptionally good at it.”
Ami replied. Then a call came in on Ami’s communicator.
“We have trouble. There is a droid at the market. We need Usagi and you guys to come and help us.”
“Right, we’ll be there.”
“Motoki thank you for the shakes.”
Makoto told him. Then Ami and Makoto left with Usagi. They got to an alleyway. Ami spoke to Usagi.
“Usagi, we need you to transform into Sailor Moon like you did earlier. Say ‘Moon Crystal Power! Make Up!’ Now please transform.”
Ami told her. Usagi nodded.
“Moon Crystal Power! Make Up!”
Usagi cried and she transformed into Sailor Moon.
“Good. Mercury Star Power! Make up!”
Ami transformed into Sailor Mercury.
“Jupiter Star Power! Make Up!”
Makoto cried and she transformed into Sailor Jupiter.
Then Sailor Jupiter spoke to Sailor Moon.
“Usagi, climb on my back please. We are in a hurry. I can carry you and run quicker to where we need to go. So, please climb on my back.”
Sailor Jupiter told her, and Sailor Moon obeyed. Sailor Moon climbed on Sailor Jupiter’s back.
“Usagi, this is the only way we can get to where we are going quickly. Your eyesight is nonexistent now. We will travel a lot quicker with you on my back. Understand?”
Sailor Jupiter asked.
“Yes. I understand.”
Sailor Moon replied. Sailor Moon did not care. Sailor Jupiter stood up and Her and Sailor Mercury ran as quickly as they could. Sailor Jupiter was extraordinarily strong. This brought some memories of when Sailor Jupiter carried Sailor Moon before after it was discovered that Usagi was the Moon Princess.
“Am I the Moon Princess?”
Sailor Moon asked as those memories arose in her mind. Sailor Jupiter was surprised at Sailor Moon’s question.
“Yes, Sailor Moon, you are. We are to make sure you stay safe. it’s our duty as Sailor Senshi.”
Sailor Jupiter told her.
“Sailor Senshi? What’s that?”
Sailor Moon questioned her. Sailor Moon became highly inquisitive.
“Ami, Rei, Minako, you, and I are soldiers who fight evil. Keep asking me questions, it might re-jog your memory Usagi.”
Sailor Jupiter told her.
“Where are we going?”
Sailor Moon asked being curious.
“There’s a droid at the market. We have to weaken it so you can defeat it.”
Sailor Mercury replied.
“Can you guys defeat the droid?”
Sailor Moon questioned.
“No, we can only weaken it. You have the power to defeat it completely.”
Sailor Jupiter explained. Then they arrived at the market.
“Sailor Moon, I am going to let you down right here. You sit there against that pole. When we are ready for you, I will come back to you, understand?”
Sailor Jupiter told Sailor Moon as Sailor Jupiter set her down by a pole and Sailor Moon sat there and waited.
“Good girl. I will be back. I promise.”
Sailor Jupiter told her as she and Mercury joined the others.
“How is she?”
“Highly inquisitive, other than that she’s fine.”
Sailor Jupiter reported.
“I see. Burning Mandala!”
Sailor Mars replied and then made her attack and sending it at the droid.
“Shine Aqua Illusion!”
Sailor Mercury yelled as she sent a massive spray of water at the droid causing more damage. Sailor Moon could not see what was going on but could hear the commotion. Hearing those noises brought distant memories back, but like before, no Mamoru or Tuxedo Kamen.
“Venus Love Me Chain!”
Sailor Venus yelled sending a chain of yellow hearts towards the enemy.
“Sparkling Wide Pressure!”
Sailor Jupiter yelled sending a ball of electricity at the droid weakening it to the point to where Sailor Moon could destroy it. Mars and Jupiter came over and brought Sailor Moon to her feet.
“We need you now. We need you to destroy the droid. Do it like last time like with that dead tree. We will help you by being your eyes.”
Mars told her. Sailor Moon’s Cutie Moon Rod appeared. Sailor Moon held on to the Cutie Moon Rod. And Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter walked Sailor Moon a bit closer to the droid and pointed the Cutie Moon Rod at the droid.
“Now say ‘Moon Princess Halation’ to destroy the droid like you did with the dead tree.”
Sailor Jupiter told her.
“I understand. Moon Princess Halation!”
Sailor Moon responded and called her attack sending yellow crescent moons destroying the droid and turning it to dust and bringing more memories back, but without Mamoru or Tuxedo Kamen.
“Good job Sailor Moon.”
Sailor Mercury told her.
“I did good?”
Sailor Moon asked in a curious tone.
“Yes, Sailor Moon. You did particularly good.”
Sailor Jupiter told her.
“Let us go back to the Hikawa Shrine. Our work is done for now.”
Sailor Mars told everyone. Usagi’s memories were returning, but without Mamoru or Tuxedo Kamen. Usagi had a long way to go before returning to normal. But the more she experienced the things she did before, the chances were good that the old Tsukino Usagi would return, but that meant the heartbreak would return as well. But was Usagi ready for it? Find out next time!
